of conservatives say george w. bush has a better approval rating than barack obama, even, right? and yet the -- it's conservatives and republicans who are invoking him as, you know, the best dig they can get in at obama is comparing him to george w. bush. it does show how far the republican party has drifted in various directions, mind you. not in one direction. but away from the bush years. and they are still trying to distance themselves from that. >> and i mean, brian, it's fascinating. we have had mission accomplished. we have had things being called obama's katrina. it literally does feel like -- insinuating things -- his iraq. are we literally going to have the right replay the entirety of the bush presidency, but as a way to attack barack obama? >> well, i think that any of bush's liabilities are sort of fair game. if you're republican. i mean, if you think about it this way, one way -- there are two ways to rehabilitate your image after you've -- you've you've damaged with it with iraq or katrina. one is do hard work oh of repairing your reputation by governing well again. the other is to

obama care. oh, no. they've taken over jeb bush. here are the facts. the united states is not closing its embassy to the vatican. all the u.s. is doing is moving to save money and increase security. it's not some secret plan to insult catholics. and now the gop group that started it all is backing down. i've got to say, i'm pretty disappointed. i really expect a lot more from gop conspiracy theories. did you think we wouldn't notice your lame attempt to manufacture a controversy? nice try, but we got you. out ri. out ri. i don't like the ups and downs of the market, but i can't just sit on my cash. i want to be prepared for the long haul. ishares minimum volatility etfs. investments designed for a smoother ride. find out why 9 out of 10 large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus, which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. risk includes possible loss of principal. i have a cold with this annoying runny nose.

and barack obama, even comparing him unfavorably in some respects the bush, which i think will be an eye-catching statement on the part of the and widely respected with national security professionals and republican who agreed to serve in his cabinet. host: wharton, virginia, democratic caller. caller: how is everyone? host: fine, thanks. caller: number one, i did not believe that the rollout of healthcare.gov did not have a lot of problems, but think it has been way overblown. in terms of concrete numbers i bet you'll see -- you know what, we have a problem, but it was not the unmitigated disaster that so many people and most republicans have described it as , the effect on the percentage of the population being less than what they might have you believe. the next thing is instead of republicans jumping up and down and talking about how you can keep your health care plan if , building up the advances of those who lost in his interview the president said he did not take over the insurance company, that they were making decisions to pay for these plans and there was nothing in the law tha

-year extension that first came up in the 80s, passed by clinton and bush and eventually president obama most likely, which continues a government ban on these sort of plastic weapons that cannot be detected by metal detectors. what was the issue here, new york democratic charles schumer, he wanted more. he said that we should define a gun by having more metal parts. in order to try to avoid -- this is too lenient, if you have a 3d printer, you can make plastic parts that won't be detected. however, because democrats wanted to get this ban through, a lot of them withdrew their opposition of the united states house, so much so this was passed by a voice vote. it's very rare that anything in the u.s. how's is passed by a voice vote. you saw it. rob andrews, a democrat from new jersey, close to the house leadership. don't let the perfect get in the way of good. as we've seen this past year, tamron, anything that has to do with any semblance of gun control turns off a large faction of the house gop conference and more conservative groups and the nra has been quiet on this. they said this law, thi

. a slap in the face to catholic. americans. and former florida governor jeb bush tweeted, quote, why would our president close our embassy to the vatican? hopefully it is not retribution for catholic organizations opposing obama care. to be clear, the vatican embassy is not closing, never was going to close. it's moving to a new location that is ironically actually 1/10 mile closer to the vatican than the old building. while republicans are rejecting the vatican has it at all. thank you, both. i first heard this i was out in san francisco with my wife's family, and i hear, oh did you hear they're closing the vatican embassy? responds to, didn't even check the facts, just went with without source, fox, i don't know who it was. he says, is this just the derangement syndrome that everything the obama administration does it's another winston churchill bust that's been thrown out the window? >> well, most, but not all of the criticism is coming from the right. i mean, ray flynn was also among those who has been critical. >> who did he vote for? isn't he a scott friend guy? he's not exactly a de

. >> pretty savage on bill clinton as much so as on barack obama. >> remember how al gore handled his defeat and the way supreme court addressed that issue and got the presidency for george w. bush. that's how our constitution works. al gore went out there and basically accepted that without complaint. al gore accepted the fact and then he won by 600,000 votes that w. was president. there were no legal challenges. there is an asymmetry between the hard right and the left. to say they are the same not true. >> there's an extraordinary speech by al gore that night and many observers thought if al gore had spoken that way over the campaign he probably would have won that election. >> if he had richard goodwin throughout the campaign instead of the concession speech it would have helped. >> we'll talk about the interview tonight. good luck. >> i hope i can do my job. katty, what's next? >> coming up, we'll have more here on "morning joe" with the economist which is looking into its krystal ball for the year ahead. we'll break down the magazine's predictions from music industry to president obama

sherman, is now the obama administration's lead egotiator for the iran nuclear talks. in a 2001 "new york times" op-ed, ms. sherman urged president bush to cut a deal, writing that kim jong il, quote, appears ready to make landmark commitments because to ensure the survival of his regime, he has to improve the country's disastrous economy by reducing the burden of a vast missile program and opening the doors to trade. well, ms. sherman was wrong about that inner op-ed she wrote in 2001. kim jong il needed to help his economy, right about that, but she thought it meant that he was ready to get rid of his ballistic missile program and open the doors more to trade. certainly they were willing to open the doors to trade but just as she had been wrong in 1994, when she helped the clinton administration work out an amazing deal with north recap the highlights , that deal with north korea they were believed to be pursues nuclear weapons so ms. sherman was the policy coordinator for north korea volved in this process, she, madeleine albright, president clinton thought what a great thing, we will

recently, the failure to address long-term funding has also been bipartisan. the bush administration ignored strong recommendations from their own private sector experts that they impaneled to give advice. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has secured here in washington, the gap in the highway trust fund has been growing and conditions of our roads, bridges and transit systems have been deteriorating. this puts america at a competitive disadvantage, complicates the movement of goods and people and contributes to congestion and pollution. at the same time, the needs grow, the resources are in significant decline. the gas tax has not been increased since the clinton administration 20 years ago. the future prospects are even worse. demands are increasing a
